Gender: Cis Female

Describe myself in five sentences or less:
Kind of awkward and shy, but I try not to come off that way. I love animals and wanna save them all. I've been a bookworm in the past but have fallen out of the lifestyle and I'm looking into picking it back up. It's my opinion that real life doesn't always have enough magic in it, so I tend to like fantasy/superhero genre shows, books and movies. In fannish speak, I'm a Slytherin, a Lannister, and a Noldo. I'm probably more Tina Belcher than I'd like to think.

Top five fandoms:
It's been years since I've written fanfic, but I run a Harry Potter read-along with some friends and I like to chat about fannish things with people with similar interests.
1. Harry Potter
2. The Silmarillion! Mainly anything to do with The House of Finwe. I think Tolkien seriously wrote this dysfunctional family just for me. Feanor is my dad. I love me some antiheroes.
3. DC/DCEU. I think the cinematic universe is weak so far, I still have hope! I should add that I haven't seen Wonder Woman yet, but I'm so excited that the reviews I've seen have been great.
4. Marvel/MCU. I'm planning on starting a full watch/rewatch of Marvel's movies, shows and shorts very soon. I'll likely be posting all about it as I go
5. Game of Thrones. The Starks are my babes but I'm a Lannister, I think.
Some honorable mentions: I'd love to see fanworks for Bob's Burgers, Attack the Block, Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus, American Gods book and TV, Chronicle,Gravity Falls, Teen Titans, The Incredibles, Vicious by VE Schwab, Star vs. the Forces of Evil, Samurai Jack, Kubo and the Two Strings, Cowboy Bebop and tons of things I can't think of at the moment.

I mostly post about: Entertainment and media that I love. Writing. Online exploits. Maybe some of my photography in the future. (I'm trying to keep politics and real life complaints out of my journal. For reference, I'll say that I was raised in a liberal politics/conservative home values household but I'm very liberal).

My last three posts: I'm new here so you'll see my friends lock post and an about me type introduction later today.

How often I post/comment: I'm trying to start with at least once a week. It's likely to fluctuate between that and numerous times a week. I comment much more often.

I've tried this before, a couple of times now, and keep getting stalled out around Captain America (the most recent time I don't think I even got that far). ._. I reaaaaally need to dig up a good timeline. And a place to stream the blasted things since I don't actually own ... any of the MCU... *facepalms*

*cheerfully does the thing*

I don't know for sure, but I think we could be pals. I will add you so you can scope my journal, and seriously, if you are like "eh, no thanks," don't worry. I won't be offended! No pressure to add me back.

Mad props for anybody who lists The Silmarillion, specifically, as their fandom. :D :D Hiya from a fellow Tolkien geek!

Hi Nicole, I'm Hannah (My middle name is Nicole so seeing Nicole written before Hannah looks very strange haha) I too am trying to read more and I completely agree that real life is lacking in magic. I'm also a fan of Harry Potter, DCEU, MCU and Game Of Thrones... friends?
